Spring Home Cleaning Tips

Spring has been upon us for a while now, with Summer approaching in about a month, maybe it's time to finally start on that Spring cleaning you promised yourself! 

We are here to provide you with some of our TOP TIPS when it comes to cleaning your home, and making sure it stays clean.


Before you even think about cleaning your home, you should start off by de-cluterring. Throwing out things that no longer spark joy (as Marie Kondo says) can cut down the time you need to spend cleaning. So throw out those clothes sitting in the back of your closet, and that box of old junk in your garage! 

Have a Plan

Now that you've decluttered your home, it's (almost) time to start cleaning. Before you get started, make a plan of how you're going to go about cleaning. Focus on one room at a time, and start/finish in the same area to make sure that you've cleaned every single corner of the room. Also, be sure to prioritize certain rooms/areas that you need to clean right away, and others that can wait another day. Once you've established a plan, and get into the routine, it'll make cleaning extremely fast and easy!

Keep Your Cleaning Supplies in Their Appropriate Spots

Storing your toilet cleaner under the kitchen sink, or your stovetop cleaner in your bedroom closet will only waste time, and discourage you from cleaning because you don't know where anything is. So, always keep the appropriate cleaning tools in the appropriate rooms to ensure maximum efficiency!

Establish A Daily Cleaning Routine

Now, cleaning everyday may sound scary, but just listen first. Doing some light cleaning everyday for ~15-20 minutes can cut down on the time and effort needed to do deep cleans. It can be as simple as scrubbing the toilet, wiping down some counters, or making sure your clothes are in the closet (and not all over the floor). 

Blast the Music & Have Fun

Now, we all know cleaning sucks, but it's also inevitable, so might as well make the most of it! Turn on your favourite playlist, put on your favourite pair of sweats and enjoy the time you spend cleaning rather than dreading it!
